What’s it like being a woman in Cape Town? An organisation called WOMAN ZONE decided to find out. Over the course of a year they went to visit thirteen women in thirteen very different communities and invited them to tell their personal stories. They listened, they recorded and carefully transcribed what each woman had to say. In this book are those stories, a collection of women with ‘everyday lives’. They come from Steenberg/Muizenberg, Nyanga, Khayelitsha, Lavender Hill, Claremont, Manenberg, Pinelands, Wetton/Ottery, Plattekloof, Kuil’s River, Wynberg and Woodstock; and one who reflects on life in District Six, but now lives in Summergreens/Milnerton. To similarly empower other women, there is also a chapter on How to tell your story.

There are two WOMAN ZONE Women’s Walks in the Mother City. Included in the book is a list of some of the woman-focused destinations on these walks.

What is WOMAN ZONE? An initiative designed to bring together women from the cultural kaleidoscope of Cape Town, to share stories and experiences, work together and learn from one another. Its aim is also to highlight women’s achievements, not their role as victims.
